Matt Cutts in his latest Video episode answers one of the most asked question in any forum.
Can i have multiple sites in the same server /Same ip?
He clearly states that as long as the sites are varied in topic and are of a small number there shouldnt be any problem for the average webmaster.
He also gives an example where someone had 2000 sites and they were all taken out.
So basically as long you have a decent number of websites in the same server having different content, you dont have to worry.

Back in the early days of AdSense, publishers had the ability to “hide” the Ads by Google branding on the ad units, and most people definitely saw a higher CTR when the branding was gone. The primary reason for this was very simply that the ad units weren’t branded as advertising, and people seemed to give them a second look. However, advertisers weren’t quite as happy about the situation, especially when publishers then tried to disguise these unbranded ad units as links within the webpage or article, hoping visitors would click them and not realize they were actually ads.
I know many publishers would welcome the ability to run ad units without the Google branding. Currently, only premium publishers can display their ad units without the Google reference. So it is interesting that this is something AdSense is testing once again, albiet on a very limited basis.

Interesting bit of news which i havent seen in my regular blog reads…
The US Congress passed a bill into law this week aimed at protecting children from online predators. The law dictates how hyperlinks and domain names leading to sexual content may be presented. The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 prohibits “misleading” domain names and links.
The law, which also imposes stricter penalties and limitations on sex offenders, imposes jail time and fines on those who try to trick minors into viewing sexual content via misspelled domain names, search, and misleading hyperlinks. Links to such content will need to be clearly labeled as to the nature of it.

If you are running WordPress as your blogging platform and if you have been trusting enough to leave User registration enabled for guests, DISABLE IT IMMEDIATELY (in wp-admin >> options: make sure “Anyone can register” is not checked).
Additionally, delete or disable ANY guest account already created by people you are not sure about.
Leaving it open and letting people sign-up for guest accounts on your WordPress blog could lead to incredibly nasty stuff happening if anybody so desired.

Dan of the famous SEO Directory List reports this interesting tip.
I requested some assistance on DP earlier this week in regards to the placement of adsense to improve CTR. An interesting tip that I hadn’t thought of related to the text that appears in the bottom right hand corner of the Google Ads, namely Advertise on this site.
The purpose of that text link is that it allows advertisers to advertise specifically on your site, by bidding on keywords available that are suitable for the sites content. The catch here is that you make nothing from the advertiser clicking that, even though you are generating revenue for Google by having people sign up for their adsense program (maybe not in all cases as some who click would be existing users, but nonetheless…)
The problem with that text link is that it leaves the viewer in no doubt that they are looking at advertisements, which could decrease your potential CTR. I was advised that removing this text, would take this variable out of the equation and as such the CTR may increase. I’ve decided to give it a go and see what results I get.
If you want to remove the Advertise on this site text link, follow these steps:
1 Log in to your AdSense account.
2 Under the My Account tab, visit the Account Settings page.
3 Scroll down to the Onsite Advertiser Sign-up section (right at the bottom) and click ‘edit.’
4 Untick the Include me in Onsite Advertiser Sign-Up check box next to Subscription:
5 Click Save changes.
It may take some time for the change to take effect on your site so be patient.
